I need to get a bubble out of my rug.
I'd pull it taut and then use carpet tape strips on the underside to hold it straight.
If this is an area rug that sits on top of your other rug you can take the rug outside and wet down the dug and start to stretch the rug back into shape. Use heavy items on the edges of the rug when you putll it into shape. This is a big job and will require 2 people to do this. You are basically streatching the rug again and putting it on a makeshift loom to hold it in place until it dries again.

How does one repair bubbles in rug flooring?
dutch061 from Phoenix, AZ
A friend of mine who does all my floor covering for me and does it for a living, uses a small thin sharp object to prick a few small holes in the bubble, to release the air. This works sometimes if it is not a large area. If the covering is not glued you may be able to pull a portion of the rug back starting at the edge till you get to the affected area.
I have had an area carpet cleaned. Now it is rippled and won't lay flat. Does anyone have any suggestions?

How do I stop an area carpet from bubbling up? I rent so I have area carpets on top of the landlord's carpets. Here is the problem, for whatever reason the carpet bubbles, creeps, folds, creases, whatever you want to call it.
